Arrived at PS HQ around 11am. They break up the interview into 4 portions. HR interview, HR presentation, facility tour, sim evaluation. I did the HR interview first and questions that were asked were pretty standard.  Then a scenario where the PIC is flying an approach what sorts of things as the FO am I looking for? If he goes below the MDA what do you do? What if after you let him know to go missed he continues even further? What do you do? They concluded the HR interview by allowing me to ask questions of which I had a few. HR interview was probably where I preformed best. You have to remember that at PS you're the point of contact for all customers. They really want to see what you'll be a good... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Apr 18, 2023 The experience was pretty much the same as all the others here. Technical interview was on Microsoft Teams. Know your IFR for the technical. Got the call from HR the next day. Flew to BOS 2 weeks later. Got on a bus from there to Portsmouth. The hotel is very nice. Got shuttled over the next morning for the sim/hr interview. Sim is a Red Bird G1000 Cessna. HR interview was same questions listed here. Immediately after got shuttled back to bus station to head back to BOS. The people there are... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Mar 28, 2023 This is regarding the in-person portion of the interview process. The company covered airline costs up from MIA to BOS, then covered the cost of a bus ticket from BOS to PSM. The next day I arrived at PlaneSense Headquarters at 1200 and immediately went into the HR interview. I was asked a few questions such as why PlaneSense, what my scariest moment in an aircraft was, etc. A tour of headquarters followed that. I then went over to the local flight school for the sim part of the interview.... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Mar 16, 2023 The questions about the approaches and charts are very detailed and may requires lots of preparation and study. A couple of the questions I missed were the magenta flags near airports. I couldn't remember at the time, but kicked myself after going back and reviewing. They are VFR checkpoints, usually used for Class D traffic sequencing. Be sure to review procedure turns for the approach, and know if it is required. I wasn't sure about this one, so I figure I may have missed it. I also got... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Feb 16, 2023 This is for the second round (HR interview and Sim Eval) and continues my previous submission from my tech interview last month. Airline from ATL to BOS with a bus ride to Portsmouth. PlaneSense line service ride to hotel. Nice hotel suite (with great breakfast). Hotel shuttle to HQ the next morning. There were 6 of us interviewing, 3 at 0800, and 3 at 1000. I was in the second group. Everyone at the company was extremely friendly, and professional. The facility is amazing. We were...

  5. Feb 15, 2023 I did the technical interview on teams and went to HQ for the sim and hr portion. The sim was pretty straightforward and mostly looking for situational awareness and being aware. The hr portion was pretty straightforward as well and more like a conversation to see who you are as a person. It was all fairly easy and the feedbacks on this site are pretty spot on. Just be yourself and have a... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Jan 18, 2023 The technical interview was conducted virtually by one PlaneSense team member. There wasn't much of any 'HR' style questions here; it was very brief and efficient. I was asked a number of questions based on the charts provided in the email packet of charts sent a week or so prior to the interview: a few questions on the Hyper 7 Arrival, and a few from a couple different approaches. No 'gotchas' just basic chart symbology. Then was asked a few VFR sectional questions (from the area around... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Jan 16, 2023 This was the virtual (Teams) Technical interview only. It was with one person, and she was very cordial and helped put me at ease. This was important, because my webcam microphone chose this as a perfect opportunity to not work! Ended up using my iPhone for the call while keeping her up on the big screen on the computer. NOT a good start for me, but she was very kind and understanding. The gouge here is absolutely spot-on. There were a couple questions I nearly answered incorrectly, but...
